My opinion on whether I want to go to the USA sways back and forth several times a day. If someone wants to give me twenty grand (real money, currently $1.904 to the pound, not dollars) I’d love to spend October, November and the start of December in the States, blogging daily reports on the mood of the country before during and after the election. I reckon I could write a one or two thousand word essay, sometimes with photos, every day. Which would make a great book pitch when it’s all over. Not quite Gonzo journalism, more Fozzy Bear (with bursts of Animal).
